Arsenal has been quite successful at home this season, winning five out of seven matches. On the other hand, Sevilla’s recent performance has been lackluster, with just one win in their last eight games.
Arsenal’s unbeaten streak in the Premier League came to an end with a 1-0 loss to Newcastle, which left manager Mikel Arteta frustrated due to a controversial VAR decision that awarded the decisive goal to Anthony Gordon.
However, Arsenal now shifts its focus to the Champions League, where they have a chance to secure a spot in the last 16. They will have to navigate this important match without key players such as Martin Odegaard, Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe, Jurrien Timber, and Gabriel Jesus.
Sevilla, on the other hand, will be without veteran defender Sergio Ramos, and they also have several other players unavailable for the match.
In terms of statistics, Arsenal has maintained an unbeaten record at home this season, winning five and drawing two of their seven matches at the Emirates. They have kept clean sheets in three of their last four home games.
Sevilla’s form has been less impressive, with only three wins in 16 games this season, and only one of those victories came in an away match. Additionally, four of Sevilla’s last five matches have had no more than three goals.
Considering Arsenal’s position at the top of Group B and their strong home record, they are favored to win this match. The absence of key players like Odegaard and Jesus may pose a challenge, but a home victory, combined with under 3.5 goals, seems like a reasonable prediction for this matchup.
